  • Loved our walks here. There are trails that take you around a large part of the lake. Great vacation spot. 
  • The fishing is awesome fun time to have with the family. It had rained that morning making the fishing even better. It's always nice here 
  • Beautiful lake for all seasons of travel. Fun summer activities and gorgeous leaves and bald eagles in the fall
